Now that IS an ad hominem attack. I'm not reporting it tho. That would be silly. But the fact that you're now resorting to that speaks volumes.

Y'see, the thing is, you back tracked on the meters thing. And you still fail to see that you don't understand what they're for.

By the way, that SOS article I gave you the link to is definitive about headphone mixing. Come back and tell us what it says about meters...
Still continuing on I see...Smh. By the way, just wanted to point out that you failed to even post a link.

yes, it's fine to do this, i give you permission. Also check on speakers though.

Cool. Simple as that.

Wrong again. Irrefutable proof that you're not reading people's posts. Read it to the end this time:

In future please don't ask for advice here if you're not willing to accept that people might give you advice which doesn't correspond with what you already believe.

Sound Production is not for petty arguments and wanton reporting of people's posts just because they disagree with you. Any more of that from anyone and you'll be having a little holiday from posting.
